Are there any laws preventing, or requirements pertaining to, having an open fire pit in my backyard in Sacramento County?
No related posts.
Here’s the Sacramento County code:
I read that as no fires in public parks and no fire pits to burn trash.
I would imagine your local fire department would frown on it, but if it’s not illegal in your back yard, have them make sure you set it up in a safe manner. You know, away from buildings, trees, etc.

I still cannot find what it says regarding temporary fire pits as sold in stores.
Rule 417 prohibits the installation of any new, indoor or outdoor, permanently installed fireplaces
after October 26, 2007 in any residential or commercial building. Consequently, traditional, open
hearth fireplaces are no longer legal to sell or install in Sacramento County after October 26, 2007.
The following are allowed:
A U.S. EPA Phase II Certified wood burning heater
A pellet-fueled wood burning heater,
A masonry heater, or
An appliance or fireplace determined to meet the U.S. EPA particulate matter emission
standard and approved in writing by the Air Pollution Control Officer.
